RISING STARS IN EECS 2018

October 28-30, 2018
MIT, Cambridge MA

This workshop brings top graduate and postdoc women in EECS together for two days of scientific discussions and informal sessions aimed at navigating early stages of the academic career. In addition to research presentations, we will hold panel discussions with MIT and invited faculty, discussions about the interview and the promotion processes and set aside time for the participants to get to know each other and form connections that will hopefully persist through time.
